At SFforeclosure, we guide you in assessing the time and finances you are able to commit, and the impact the transaction might have on your lifestyle.

From a groundwork of financial clarity, we customize your search to help you find ideal properties for your need.

Analyzing Value

Real estate continues to be a good investment, but must be pursued skillfully to protect your assets. We guide you in analyzing the value of property listings.

Furthermore, we help you assess any improvements to meet your goals, and project long-term value in a changing economy. We mentor you in gauging the time and finances you will need to invest and your profit potential.

Real Estate Agent Assistance

With foreclosures on the rise, it is our goal to help educate and mentor realtors so they can better assist homeowners facing hardship. We provide trainings and mentoring programs in the alternatives to foreclosure, including the complex short sales transaction process. With more than 50% of today’s real estate transactions ending as short sales, becoming an expert not only benefits the social good; it is also good for business.

The most difficult part of a short sale is negotiating with lenders. Our training teaches realtors how to strategize and effectively negotiate to achieve a win-win solution.

We have trained hundreds of realtors in the Bay area through the San Francisco Board of Realtors Expo, Women’s Council of Realtors, title companies, and realtor training and mentoring programs.
